This fantastic album has K.D. paying homage to fellow Canadian songwriters, such as Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, and Neil Young.

We know what you're thinking... Not another one of those "I've always wanted to record my favourite songs that inspired me" albums. 'Hymns of the 49th Parallel' is just that BUT the songs are fantastic!

Handpicked Canadian legends abound - songs of Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Ron Sexsmith, Leonard Cohen, and Jane Siberry all feature, with K.D. back working with cohort Ben Mink. The secret to the success that is 'Hymns of the 49th Parallel' is that they have kept it simple and clean - something to be lauded in this day and age.
